She expected sunshine and balmy breezes. What she saw was everyone's worst nightmare.

Bess Grady has heard the unmistakable sound before. She knows what it means. But not even the eerie lament of the howling dogs can prepare her for what has taken place in the small village. The seasoned photojournalist had been sent there on an easy assignment, and now she has stumbled upon something she was never meant to see. Amid chaos and fear, she joins forces with an intimidating stranger, a man whose alliances are unclear but whose methods have a way of leaving bodies in his wake. For what she has witnessed is only the first stage in a plan of terror that may kill us all. And she has no choice but to stop it—or die trying....

A very fast read and my first introduction to the author, Iris Johansen. I could not put it down. She establishes her principle character, Elizabeth (Bess) Grady, 29, divorced and photo-journalist, quickly as a strong, independent woman. A photo shoot, for a series of articles, on undiscovered destinations in Mexico, brings her to Tenajo, a small Mexican village. Her sister, Dr Emily Corelli, 36, Pediatric Surgeon in Detroit, married and one child, age ten, persuaded Bess to bring her along. On arrival, they discover everyone has died except for a baby. Colonel Rafael Esteban, of the Mexican Army, using his position, is working for his own benefit. Bess is caught up in his plan as the only living witness to what really happened in Tenajo. What ensues keeps you clued to the pages as you find out how a biological agent is to be deployed in the United States.more
I really liked this book. It's a topic that is so out there, that you can't help but get sucked in to find out what the outcome will be. Plus, the fact that Bess falls for her bad boy savior, is intriguing. Bess is all black and white, right and wrong. Well, Kaldak is anything but. He takes care of himself no matter where that takes him on the side of right and wrong. Bess at first isn't sure that she can trust him, but once that's sorted out, she puts all her trust in him alone.Bess is selfless, brave and determined. I loved her character and thought the photography aspect was perfect for this story. I also enjoyed the part that Josie played, and everything that Bess and Emily did for her.Overall, this one ranks toward the top of my favorites from this author. If you haven't picked her up, I'd suggest others before this one, but this would definitely make the list.more
